and john than. the other day rush limbaugh said i had done something he would have got in trouble for. please explain. i said that last year ted kennedy passed the torch of the kennedy brotherhood to barack obama making him the next kennedy, and it was so clear to everybody that's what was going on. he said if he had said something like that he would have been accused of making an ethnic slur because i used the word brother. i point out -- i said it at the time. not in an ethnic sense, not in a richelle sense, brother in the sense of sibling brother, actual brother. he jumped up and made himself into a victim again. what is the matter with these people? can't they take a week off? just take a week off. it's a funeral. take a week off from politics. >> if ted kennedy is one of the great senators of our time, rush limbaugh takes the crown as the great blowhard of our time. there's nobody who would have criticized rush limbaugh if he had talked about a brother because there's so many other things to criticize him for, other outrageous things that he says almost every day on the radio. so
? they were obviously canadian. leave it to boss limbaugh to get it dead wrong. limbaugh weighing in on president obama's former campaign organization. it's the night of the living dead in the daytime. obama zombies -- which is tough to say -- obama zombies marching around with little instructions and pamphlets, manuals. the evidence is all around us, and it's hungry for our brains. joining me now is max brooks, whose latest in the series of must-read exposes, the zombies survival guide, according to tax, is due out september 6th. thank you for your time tonight, sir. >> thank you, keith. >> is this a real possibility, can we see the gop using the zombie defense against democrats and will limbaugh wind up telling his followers, i was talking about democratic zombies before you were? >> if they did, it would be counterproductive because republicans would like a zombie outbreak, keith. >> and why -- why would they like a zombie outbreak, max? >> because, keith, as we have said before, during a zombie outbreak, society would collapse, the government would implode, we would all have t
-- have you done anything on rush limbaugh? he can say anything and his limbaughites -- everything he says. please, elaborate on him so that the listening audience can see where he is really coming from. thank you. i will hang up and listen. guest: great questions. we have indeed looked at several clips rachel maddow has made. i think we have done for ray and i think one was a false and maybe two others that were more in the true range. we have a range on the meter from true to false. true, mostly true, half true, barely true, false, and pants on fire. so she has a mixed record. rush limbaugh -- and you can check this by going to our site -- one of the things we did is allow you to look at someone's record so you can look at rush limbaugh on our site, click on the people and then click on his name and you can see his record, how many true, half true, etc. come. host: according, he has been true once, barely true twice, and false ones. guest: that is a mixed record. it also is a function -- we have only begun doing the talk show host and the pundits. so we are not looking at a large sample,

. >> here is no surprise, rush limbaugh did not like what the congresswoman had to say. >> represented to betsy markey told a gathering of constituents that some people will have to give it a chance to fix the system. >> no one is one to suffer any benefit cuts. but here are the democrats running around. there have to be. folks, medicaid and. he is also a doctor. >> people are going to revolt of that what happens. >> they have the votes. he can do it. he does not have to listen to you. why should they really care if they really felt passionate about this bill. >> let's see if they really do have the votes. and we have to u.s. senators that will vote against this bill. it is up to you to make sure that your other senator also votes against it. there are others that are concerned about voting for this, especially with what is going on economically. we do not have -- we are looking at a mountain of debt. some recipients will have to help reform the medical benefits. >> she is talking about a medical bill that has 33 new entitlements. this is a huge expansion and it is not meant to do this
limbaugh, all these people saying the birthers are out of their mind. kind of interesting. we'll see what happens. willie geist, i swear you have made broadcasting history again. >> barnacle sits over here during way too early, which is distracting enough in its own right, but he's critiquing the show as it goes. telling me, no good, i won't make it. >> joe and i realize we can say we are here at the beginning exactly. it's like being present when milton beryl came out. >> or the big bang. >> a big story, bill clinton touching down. we begin with breaking news. former president bill clinton is in north korea on behalf of the obama administration. he's trying to negotiate the release of those two jailed american journalists. reporters euna lee and laura ling sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for illegally crossing the border. adrian joins us live from beijing -- she's not with us right now. we'll try to get back to her. pat buchanan, let me ask you. what do you think is going on here. can you remember a precedent for something like this? >> i think jimmy carter -- jesse jacks
angry mobs. >> reporter: some on display get stoked by the provocative megaphones of rush limbaugh who went so far as accusing democrats of wanting to soernlize medicine of nazi germany. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika logo. >> reporter: to encourage attend, conservative organizers acknowledge they sent e-mail alerts to members but argue the anger is real. >> i think that the politicians should be careful about so easily dismissing this many people showing up and participating in the process. >> reporter: virginia democrat jim moran expects to get an earful. >> funny to be opposed. i don't think it's fine to come in with the objective of disrupting the town hall meetings. >> reporter: for "today," kelly o'donnell, nbc news, washington. >>> for more on the political impact of all of this let's turn to john horowitz, chief washington kornt for cnbc. john, good morning. >> hey, jenna. >> with all the shoving and yells at all the town halls it's hard to get a sense of which side is being heard. how big of an impact will this have on congress when they return
, attack hannity, limbaugh, hewitt, well bortz, fox news, what a shock, fox news. >> they've attacked fox? sean: can you believe? >> but that's funny. when people have the right to ask what is going on, where is my taxpayer money going, what is going to happen to my health care and my choices and my freedoms, they get mad. sean: people are asking smart questions. >> and they don't like it and people like sean hannity or rush rush limbaugh are inciting mobs, inciting fear. just answer our questions and there won't be a problem. sean: all right. so the net fallout is if mcdonald wins in virginia, and christie wins in new jersey, that tells us what? >> that tells us that the democrats had better back up in a hurry. if i were a democrat in the house i wouldn't vote after this until after i saw those elections. if christie and mcdonald win, that's trouble for them. sean: the blue dogs if they support cap and tax -- >> they're done. sean: stimulus, they're done. >> they're history. sean: are you ready for our concert? [cheers and applause] guys, good to see you. thank you. leeann, love to see
: it is nothing new to see these two guys on television, right russian ark wrong. rush limbaugh and karl rove like you have never seen them before. >> it looks like a full-scale military action 500 -- her shooting 500 feet but this mission was hardly top secret and these guys are made of plastic. g.i. joe mania just can't contain itself, next.e're ♪ he never gives up his always there ♪ we are our own mixed up blend of one of a kind spices we are miracle whip and we will not tone it down (announcer) introducing new tums dual action. this tums goes to work in seconds and lasts for hours. all day or night. new tums dual action. bring it on. that's a-- tiny netbook. yeah, it's-- good-looking, lightweight. generally awesome. and you could just-- go online, video-chat with my cousin. this is un-- under $200. are you some kind of-- mind reader, visionary ? no, i have them. huh. the new lightweight hp mini netbook with windows and america's largest and most-reliable 3g network built in. only 199.99 with mobile broadband plans from 39.99 i am-- speechless, envious. wanna be me right now. getting one.
limbaugh back at the end of may saying that obama hates white people. pat buchanan saying white men are, quote, experiencing exactly what black people experienced during segregation, which is, of course, absurd, that kind of rhetoric underlying this opposition makes it very hard for me to think that race is not in the picture. >> okay. so then if we're going to put blame on anyone's shoulders, whose fault is it anyway? is it people buying into the rhetoric or some of the people you mention, some of the conservative talk show hosts there. should they be more responsible with their language because people may be buying into what they're saying and not realizing that it's coded racism. >> well, words have consequences, and i think if you're going to have a microphone and you're going to speak to millions of listeners every day, you have a responsibility to, first of all, do your homework so you don't tell lies about the health care bill and act like they're going to kill grandma and then send sarah palin out there with a head full of nothing to tell lies to the american people. and when yo
to identify the people with the legislation. >> savannah, we saw rush limbaugh, among others, sean hannity as well, begin in fact to criticize the notion that some democrats would call on other democrats to support ted kennedy's legacy and pass health care reform. do you expect that call will be made more formally for democrats and even some republicans? if so, do you think it will be effective? do you think he will have a gipper like opportunity? i have to ask you to hang on one moment. mark sanford is speaking, lieutenant governor has formally called on him to resign. sanford rejected that yesterday but we're going to hear what he has to say right now. >> i wanted to very briefly offer a couple of comments in light of a letter that we sent, our office sent back to david thomas yesterday. it really fits in this larger category of the response i gave yesterday to andrew bowers letter to my office in which in that letter i basically said two things. i said, one, let's not make decisions based on hyperbole, media accounts. let's make decisions on facts. two, when one looks at facts we have a

of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j

is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's
and the rest of it. i think the leadership is afraid of rush limbaugh, apparently, because he is encouraging all this stuff. >> the democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the republicans are handing the democrats their rabbit. the democrats have no argument. they have no fathers. they -- they have no facts. they don't really have a bill. if people were really just to stand up quietly and civilly raise questions, the money doesn't add up, the c.b.o. has said that you say it is going to control costs but it increases it by a trillion dollars. all of this stuff, it's really out there. they would be winning these debates as they were before the town halls. what is happening is this is causing a backlash. it is completely unnecessary. it is shooting yourself in the foot. if you want to demonstrate, you want to shout, do you it outside carrying a sign. when you walk inside, you ask a question, is this going to have two effects? one, a public opinion will make people unsympathetic to those who oppose the bill, and secondly, it is going to give a great excuse for the democrats when congres
limbaugh comparing nancy pelosi and the democrats to the nazis. that comes on top of those aechbt-obama town halls that featured at least one person carrying a sign that accused obama of having a nazi-style health plan. >> just say no! just say no! just say no! just say no! >>> as we pointed out before, this is a well-organized set of protests. those mob scenes are supported in part by a group called freedom works, and today the afl-cio, the labor organization announced it's going to send people to town halls as well to confront the anti-obama teams. we have organizers on both sides tonight to show the fight right here on the set. >>> plus, the battle for america. the story of the most exciting presidential election of our times. why did ted kennedy break with the clintons and support obama.
is a rush limbaugh, michael steele, new gingrich? is important that the party or movement of conservatives have a leader as definable? morrice is it the open source there could be multiple leaders, multiple groups and they will have the same effect and turn the country around and take back the white house and congress over the next two years? >> there is plenty of time. this time four years ago few americans knew barack obama. there is plenty of time to revolve a a leader for the next presidential cycle but in the meantime as volunteers or activists have to take a role and and gage and build within our communities. the problem i think has happened in her on movement through the years it is a lot of conservatives went to washington to do good. they did very well. they stayed and bought into the system. they bought into the benefits of the system and the power. we need to return to a movement of activists. >> a number of conservative leaders, tom delay said we do not need reagan anymore we need a new path, all of us have lived the past 40 or 50 years hearing about kennedy and the last electi
limbaugh and sean hannity and george bush are at greater risk of assassination van barack obama. >> guest: as a fun part of the book. in the last chapter i point out i wouldn't have mentioned it if they haven't brought it up so much other ad campaign you keep hearing about this unique rest of, is that being assassinated because he is black in and this is unlike any other president or any other presidential candidate in the call in for a special secret service protection and article about i'm so worried review it and there was some liberal in britain sank in the is elected he will be assassinated so i wouldn't have mentioned if they haven't been dangling the big red tape in front of me but in point of fact pretty much every presidential assassination or attempted assassination in the history of america was committed by a liberal. some version have entered his communist palestinian extremists and there are a couple who didn't particularly have politics someone include john wilkes booth in that and john hinckley, but envelopes with casey was an actor. he was being hit a piece maugre in and t
as it would give ammunition to the people he describes as far right-wing whether it is rush limbaugh, sean hannity and the like and people he apparently feels have antipathy toward the black community and don't have a sincere passion to try to help uplift and so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. bill cosby said it's not a matter of earing dirty laundry. it isn't as if there are people who don't know about the problems, about the high dropout rate and don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children, who don't know about feet high incarceration rates and celebration of the drug culture. and i think it is just so difficult to have that conversation, steve. it's painful to hear it and then there are those as the caller points out will legitimately use that to distort that in some cases by use it to say we don't need social intervention to help those left behind and often left behind because of historical injustice in the society. so then it leads people i think into positions that are highly polarized and i am not going to admit to falls
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th
premiums. this is unsustainable, if i can't stand up to some screamers and to rush limbaugh, then i don't deserve to be in the united states senate. >> is there a democratic versus republican fight going on that is about health care policy? if we -- everybody acknowledges the numbers -- most people acknowledge the number of uninsured out of control costs, the difficulties, not only for american families, but for our economy and our international competitiveness in terms of our business. are republicans proposing a different way to meet those challenges? or are they saying don't fix it, it's fine? >> they're the party as nope. and i like to think of myself in the party of hope. it's no, it's no about everything. and you know, i don't think they do buy into the fact that this is a problem for most americans. they say we have the greatest health care in the world. well, the fact is, we pay twice as much and our outcomes aren't as good. we have 48 million people with no health care as a result they walk into emergency rooms. it's costing every american who is insured $1,100 to pick up the c
's comparing health care reform to a panel of death? rush limbaugh compared it to naziism. is sarah jumping on rush's bandwagon? more lawmakers jumping on the bandwagon. the president asked for the money for four jets. congress double down, decided to allow enough money for eight. recession? deficit anyone? and here's a shocking plane story, a continental flight packed with passenger forced to divert because of rotten weather as if that's not enough of a headache, the people were trapped on the plane overnight at the airport. not allowed off. we're going to talk to one of those passengers. good morning, everyone. i'm contessa brewer. the big story we're watching, divers are in the hudson river trying to recover the bodies of two victims still mising from saturday as mid air collision. nine people in all were killed when a private plane and a sight seeing helicopter collided over the hudson. the bodies of seven people have been pulled from the river. earlier new york city mayor michael bloomberg addressed concerns that crowded airspace should have more restrictions. >> sadly, you know, somet
